Totally agree.

For reference, here's the relevant PCI DSS (version 2) text:

12.7 Screen potential personnel prior to
hire to minimize the risk of attacks from
internal sources. (Examples of
background checks include previous
employment history, criminal record,
credit history, and reference checks.)
Note: For those potential personnel to
be hired for certain positions such as
store cashiers who only have access to
one card number at a time when
facilitating a transaction, this requirement
is a recommendation only.

Testing Procedures:
12.7 Inquire with Human Resource department management and
verify that background checks are conducted (within the constraints
of local laws) on potential personnel prior to hire who will have
access to cardholder data or the cardholder data environment.
